Of that grandmother full of wisdom that tells her “in my time”, Of the mothers, each of his own; and also, of course, of the children, last depositors of a past that makes the future firm. “From me to You” is the story of the traditions that are inherited. Of family secrets. Of its legends, its landscapes and drawers full of stories. It is the story of the important, of what endures, of what unites families with a thread that goes through time. And of the perfumes that pull that thread, like Eau de Rochas, present in so many generations of women and promoter of this book. The affinity of the iconic perfume with this project is unquestionable. It was the first colony water created specifically for women under the baton of Hélène Rochas and for years it has passed from mothers to daughters marking an era. That is why the brand has decided to join and support the production of this Table Book, turning it into a project with solidarity purposes.
